    Sexual Violence Project

    Pin It

    In addition to women and girls, boys, men, and persons with diverse sexual orientation and gender identity/expression (SOGIE) are targeted for sexual violence in many conflicts, and they are vulnerable to sexual violence, abuse and exploitation during flight and in displacement as well. Unaccompanied boys, boys and men with disabilities, boys and men in detention, transgender women and men, adolescents with diverse SOGIE, and sex workers, among others, are particularly at risk.

    In humanitarian settings, sensitized services for all sexual violence survivors are frequently weak or ad hoc. Targeted protection mechanisms are also not systematically in place. Without appropriate, dignified care, survivors may suffer debilitating psychological, physical and/or social consequences. The wives, daughters, mothers, and other female family and community members are also impacted by male-directed violence.

    In January 2018, the Women's Refugee Commission launched a three-year project to help improve interventions to protect forcibly displaced boys, men, persons with diverse SOGIE from sexual violence as well as expand good quality programs for survivors. The impact of male-directed violence on women and girls is also being explored. We are committed to improving humanitarian response for all survivors, which creates safer, healthier communities for everyone.

    WRC’s work with men and boys is feminist in its approach and prioritizes accountability to women and girls. We do this by:

    • Exploring the ways in which sexual violence against men and boys impacts the lives of women and girls;
    • Exploring the ways in which sexual violence against men and boys intersects with violence against women and girls;
    • Advocating for services for and attention to female, male, and LGBTI+ survivors;
    • Working to dispel the myth that post-sexual violence services are widely available for
    • women and girls but not for men and boys: across humanitarian settings, they are frequently require strengthening for all survivors; and
    • Including experts on violence against women and girls and persons with diverse SOGIESC on our Global Advisory Committee.
